How’d you like it, I’d want it between the eyes, quick and no pain.

Tobias Weldon is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Tobias is notorious for his addiction to dueling, and getting cocky around his opponents. He is seen in New Austin towns such as Thieves' Landing, Armadillo, MacFarlane's Ranch (rarely), and in the West Elizabeth town of Blackwater.


Red Dead Redemption

Tobias is encountered on the streets of some towns. He often refers to Marston as "Chicken Head" and will ask for a duel. If Marston accepts then the player will enter a duel. Tobias can be killed or disarmed during the duel. After the duel is over, Marston will get fame and Honor if Tobias isn't killed. In Thieves' Landing, he can be found at Whit McSwain's food stall seemingly managing the transactions. He can also be encountered in the wilderness, where he will challenge Marston to a sharpshooting contest.

Undead Nightmare

In Undead Nightmare, Tobias can be found defending the town of Armadillo where he is on the balcony above the Gunsmith or on the roof of the Freight Office. If Armadillo is saved and Tobias survives, he will stand in front of the General Store.
